My friend and I stayed two nights at this property - free parking in the lot and easy walking distance to all of the area's galleries, shops, restaurants and sights. Room itself was decorated in a pretty southwestern decor, loved slipping into a nice thick robe after a hot bath. The breakfast was alright; nothing special but there was plenty... More

This is a pretty little inn in old town convenient to many museums and restaurants. It's reminiscent of an old motor inn but well done. The lobby is comfortable and staff is friendly. Rates were decent and included a hot breakfast with eggs, meat,potatoes, fruit, yogurt and rolls with coffee, tea and juices. Or room was clean and well kept... More

We were on a cross cx car tour and stayed here because of Tripadvisor review--We loved it- my daughter and I thought they were very friendly, hospitable and caring. The rooms were clean and well attended to, the buffet was really great and a good window in time to make it convenient for all. The 15 dollar voucher was great... More

Very nicely updated "motor inn" in the heart of Santa Fe. No complaints at all. Service excellent, good fresh fruit at buffet breakfast (but a shame to eat in a hotel while in Santa Fe), clean rooms, nice bath amenities. Three computers and printers for guests use free of charge. Sherry and cookies every afternoon. Sweet little pool area. Probably... More

We stayed at the Inn for three nights and loved it. We appreciated the parking and could walk to almost everywhere we wished to go. A tour company will pick you up at the door. The rooms are beautifully decorated with southwestern touches. Breakfast is great and we enjoyed drinks and entertainment in the evening.

My husband and I stayed 5 nights at the Inn. We had a large king superior room with a kiva fireplace and small balcony. It was a very inviting space with southwestern decor. The amenities could not be beat for the June price: free parking, free breakfast, restaurant voucher, sherry hour, and small outdoor pool. It's close to the plaza... More

We were in Santa Fe for the weekend and decided to stay at the Inn of the Governors this trip. It is ideally located in downtown Santa Fe for exploring the area. The price of the rooms are mid-range for plaza area Santa Fe ($220/night plus tax...summer rate). This does include free parking (somewhat rare for hotels in the area... More
